Disney Parks Droid Factory / Re: 2022 Droid Factory - Mandalorian Set
« on: January 11, 2022, 02:43 AM »
Mine came in the mail over the weekend and I was excited to get home to some new droids.  Theyíre pretty sweet.  The new astromech domes are nice and have some modular design built into them for Iím guessing possible reuse later with different possible attachments or whatnot. 

The security droid is kind of an army builder, and itíd be cool to have a couple, but the price obviously makes that a tough proposition. 

The champion of the box is the boatman over the river styx.  Heís def cool and would make a neat astromech with the right legs.  Heís completely clean which doesnít jive with my memory of him in the show but thatís ok.  His joints needed heating to loosen some of them, however his main joints at the hip and shoulders are kinda on the loose side, and his heavy nature makes him topple easily.  Once I got him posed right he holds ok but he def could fall with the slightest fart crosswise.  His oar is I think similar or meant to be similar to or same as the weird staffs the Mustafar bug looking dudes had.  Weird we got figures of them now that I think about that.  Anyway the oar is way big though and a heavy accessory. 

He makes me really long for the boat now, which given the stuff 3D dudes now Iím sure it exists or will shortly. 🤷‍♂️

Overall a fun set.  Now I want the blind box droids.  Hell, I love the boxes even.

Yeah no Disney, yetÖ though I was able to order a second set of two on hasbro that I hope they didnít cancel since theyíre not selling out there (yet).

I need Bossk.  You need Bossk.  The ladiesÖ they need and desire Bossk.

I wonder when Disney gets their ShoretroopersÖÖ. And rebel troopers. ☹️

Had a solid afternoon of meetings and seem to have missed Fett. I guess that's the world's way of telling me I don't need to drop $24 for a single new 3 3/4" figure.

GameStop still has bud

I just ordered on Pulse cuz I couldnít find him on Amazon and said f it.  Heís sold out there now.

Was able to grab this item thanks to Jeff!

Give my left nut for a 1/18 UWing.  Not truncated but a true 1/18.  Itís mostly wing so like a tie fighter itís reasonable, and it should be bigger than the larger ships theyíve done already (that are undersized) so it wouldnít make them look off or anything.

Iím to the point though, big ships kinda need to be pretty damn special because the barge and RC will be absolute hogs together in anyoneís collection.  Something would probably have to go, or go into storage ultimately.

Donít get me wrong I love the rancor, I just am pretty content with the saga one.  I do love it though and consider it essential.  I got my OG at Gold Circle on clearance and he ate far more GI Joeís than Star Wars.  He is still in my collection too.

Same with mine.

One and done on these haslab things.  Youíve missed some cool **** but youíve missed a lotta headaches too haha.

Interesting strategy.  I wish I could buy more off pulse.

Iím pondering painting some panels on that translucent one to make it look different now.  The dome swap on the R2s will suit me fine but the other two will need customized.  I should sell the gear maybe.

Iím totally happy on the legacy rancor.  Itís glossy rawhide looking, and scaled right, and articulatedÖ Iím pretty content.  Itís more a background than a figure to me.  I would rather them do something new and awesome on haslabs.
